Remarks & Notes 
Conrail #8830, weekend commuter service southbound out of Poughkeepsie, NY comes around the curve in Cold Spring, NY with Breakneck Ridge looming behind on May 20, 1978. It's led by two Penn Central FL9s with the faded yellow that turned into cream on the nose. The lead engine survives to this day, working on the Grapevine Vintage in Texas.

Conrail, Erie Lackawanna, New Haven, New York Central and Penn Central ran exotic equipment - but very road worn and run down.

The three biggest passenger carriers - Pennsylvania, New York Central, and New Haven - merged to create the ill-fated Penn Central, whose passenger losses and poor service led to the formation of Amtrak and state-owned commuter lines.
